Who comes to the Christmas Dinner for All? The community comes! You don't need a special reason to qualify - ALL are invited! People come who would otherwise be alone. People from St. John’s and the community come because they want to be part of the celebration. A favorite story concerns a mother residing at the Northfield Retirement Community who invited her children and grandchildren for dinner and came to St. John’s for the celebration. The daughter told us, "This was likely mom’s last Christmas and she celebrated in hosting the family dinner once more!" We invite YOU to join us in this celebration!

The first concert in 2020 brings Jerry Kosak and Pat Donohue to the Guild stage. Both guitar masters will share music with Northfield audiences shortly after the new year. Audiences will recognize Pat’s signature style after hearing music he played or wrote for almost 20 years on A Prairie Home Companion as part of the house band. Jerry’s music has hints of roots and blues, rock, classical, and jazz, allowing him to “develop his own unique voice as a player and composer.” Don't miss this night of incredible guitar music, buy your tickets at the Guild today!
